What are Wall Street analysts saying about Corning stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Corning stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Corning continues to benefit from strength in its Optical Communications, Environmental Technologies and Life Sciences business. Solid demand for Gorilla Glass 5 and fiber optics products remain key catalyst. Penetration into developing markets and product portfolio expansion remain tailwinds. Corning is a leading innovator in the glass substrate industry. The company introduced its latest innovation in glass technology, Corning Gorilla Glass 6, to provide the toughest cover glass available for consumer mobile devices. This will likely be a major top line growth driver for the company. Moreover, aggressive share buyback favors bottom line growth. The stock has also outperformed the industry in the past three months on an average. However, building a significant position in China in the prevailing economic and political environment will be challenging for the company given the ongoing trade war between the two nations."
